The End Must Be Near - UPDATED & BUMPED

The End Must Be Today.

We have nothing more to say about the former senator than what we've said below and in older posts.

We'll be listening for two things in the coming days:
1) What legislation MUST be passed in the senator's memory, and
2) A list of his accomplishments.

Posted 8.20 at 11am:The liberals progressives communists in the state-run old-media didn't get a chance to milk the Cronkite death prior to the event. They won't make that mistake with Ted Kennedy.

Judging by the random appearances of Ted Kennedy pics, and headlines with his name, the end must be near. Unfortunately, Kennedy is a liberal, so on the political front there isn't a life worth commemorating, as there are no accomplishments to point to. If we had to say something nice about the man, it would be something like this:

Ted Kennedy did not propose the idea that US veterans should pay for their own health care.

It just doesn't have a ring to it.

Instead, like the Wellstone funeral, the MSM and their mindless followers will keep the Kennedy story 24/7 now, when he dies, and probably a few weeks thereafter. From today's Yahoo home page:

As you can imagine, we're overloaded with ideas when posting a blog entry about Ted Kennedy. The topics of auto wrecks, failed policies repeated ad nauseam, zero personal responsibility, and Crown Royal come to mind. The Daily Kos and Democratic Underground kids have an equally tough challenge: finding a success that can be attributed to the senator.

Our #1 beef with the senator goes back to 1983-1984. You'll recall, Andropov called Reagan's Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) bluff that he'd deploy the Pershing missiles in Europe if the Soviets didn't remove their missiles in the prison called Eastern Europe. Whoops. Reagan spent most of 1984 deploying the missiles in Britain and W. Germany. This was also a year after Reagan suggested SDI (missile defense), which had commies, and like-minded US senators, in a tizzy.

Through his friend and former Democrat senator from California, John V. Turnney, this Massachusetts senator relayed a message to Andropov with the intent to help the Democrats take the White House in November. (We'd use the words "treason" and "traitor" here, but we don't want to lower the political discourse...) Kennedy, at that time in 1983, considered himself a possible candidate for 1984.

Kennedy's offers to the leader of the Evil Empire, the Soviet Union:

1) Andropov to invite the senator to Moscow where Kennedy could help "arm Soviet officials with explanations regarding problems of nuclear disarmament so they would be better prepared and more convincing during appearances in the USA."

2) "...organize in August - September of this year [1983], televised interviews with Y. V. Andropov in the USA." The intent was a "direct appeal" from a visiting Andropov to the American people. Kennedy offered to arrange these interviews with "Walter Conkite and Barbara Walters."

And our fellow 'conservatives' call us "a right wing nut" and "stupid" for comparing the Democrats to communists.
